[High Speed 2 alternative HSUK appoints Media House in £250,000 contract, Anna Reynolds, PRWeek, February 15, 2016]
[…] London-based Media House International has been brought in on a one-year contract it told PRWeek was worth £250,000, to promote HSUK through PR and social media. The agency said it was chosen following its work on the Cut Tourism VAT campaign.
HSUK has claimed that it has 1:25,000 scale plans of its proposed route, but does not have the money for a licence from the Ordnance Survey to publish them.
Apparently, then, HSUK doesn’t have the money to publish area maps based on the Ordnance Survey — or even OpenStreetMap — but they do have the money to pay a PR company 680 quid a day.
